The RF Economic Outlook was launched in 2003 as the Cayman Business Outlook. The event, which began as a half-day lunch, grew in popularity and eventually morphed into an all-day event attracting over 400 participants each year. In 2014, the conference rebranded as the Cayman Economic Outlook (CEO) and the following year, RF introduced the event to the Bahamian market and to Barbados in 2021.
This now regional event serves as the platform for predicting significant business trends for the year ahead. Global and local experts are engaged to provide a forecast of the key social, economic and political & environmental issues that impact the respective economies. Each year, a new theme is strategically chosen in line with the prevailing global forces of the day and how those forces impact the Caribbean region. Along with amazing insights and tons of networking opportunities, RF also provides Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits.
This year's conference is a hybrid event, giving delegates the option to attend in-person or online. As in previous years, the cost of in-person attendance includes access to all sessions, a welcome gift, morning breakfast, buffet lunch and rousing cocktail reception at the end. All COVID-19 safety protocols will be enforced, including contactless registration, socially distanced seating, and networking hubs appropriate for small groups. Virtual attendees will be able to access the sessions live or on-demand. They will also be able to post comments and ask questions to presenters LIVE! No matter how they choose to attend, RFEO 2022 delegates can expect a full day of thought-provoking and interactive sessions!
The format of our 2022 event is a reflection of the disruptions that have occurred in the past decade worldwide that have forced governments, business leaders and individuals to rethink their futures and strategize for the potential opportunities and risks ahead. Along with internationally renowned presenters and regional leaders, we will explore the future of work, finance, healthcare, technology, energy and more during what promises to be an exciting and thought-provoking day!
